  • mason jar (16 oz size)
  • foaming soap pump


  • 2 Tbsp Castille soap
  • 1 tsp aloe vera juice
  • 1 tsp oil (such as jojoba, sweet almond, or fractionated coconut)
  • 10 drops essential oil
  • distilled water (boiled and cooled water is fine)


  • Remove the lid from the mason jar
  • Put the Castile soap, aloe vera juice, and your choice of oil into the jar.
  • Stir well.
  • Add desired essential oils
  • Fill to top with water. Don't forget to leave enough room at the top so it doesn't overflow when you put the pump in.
  • Put on the pump! You are done!
  • As you use it, you can swirl to ensure ingredients are mixed.


Here are some of my favorite combinations:
1)Unscented castile soap with jojoba oil and 10 drops lavender essential oil
2)Hemp almond castile soap with sweet almond oil and 8 drops Thieves essential oil blend and 3 drops cinnamon essential oil
